Also, cards based on the GeForce2 MX chip are dual-headed, which
allow you to use TwinView, providing both monitor and tv-out at 
the same time (if that matters to you).  Other GeForce chipsets
also support TwinView.  You can find a list in the documentation
on NVidia's website in the linux driver section.


There's also a version 4191 of the driver, but there are some
problems, so if you go with an NVidia-based card, the 3123 driver 
is the way to go.
